Update: UTA & ‘Scrubs’ Star Donald Faison Settle Unpaid Commissions Lawsuit

Update, 2:53 Pm: United Talent Agency and Donald Faison have settled their dispute over $73,000 in unpaid commissions. The former Scrubs actor supposedly had no idea that he owed his former agency the funds until UTA filed suit against him in La Superior Court on May 9, sources tell me. The money was from part of Faison’s run on the NBC and later ABC comedy plus the $60,000 fee he received from The Law pilot back in 2010. After being informed about the case, Faison contacted UTA yesterday and paid up the full amount immediately. Unsurprisingly, the actor also fired his business manager over the matter. UTA will withdraw its seven claim complaint against Faison next week, I’m told. Previously; Thursday Pm: UTA wants ex-client Donald Faison to pay up. Seeking $73,000 in damages, the agency today filed a seven claim complaint (read it here) in La Superior Court against the former Scrubs actor for unpaid commissions.
